I don't know whether it is of any help but WinSock proxy settings can be 
controlled though mspclnt.ini and Wspcfg.ini files. I have no much
about its matter but i had to disable winsock proxy for X programs by
into X11R6.4/bin directory Wspcfg.ini file with

[Common Configuration]

in it to be able to run them on my computer. Otherwise sockets simply
work while winSock proxy was enabled.
